In analyses by outside laboratories, NSI results for MPC powders were found to range from a low of 35 to a high of 72.

NSI results for three separate lots of Idaho Milk Products’ IdaPro® MPC powders ranged from 67 to 72. An outside laboratory also analyzed MPC powders for WPNI. Typically, most MPC powders have WPNI values of 4 to 7. Idaho Milk Products’ IdaPro® MPC 80 was found to have a WPNI value above 15.

The results of both analyses indicate that IdaPro® MPC 80 is more carefully manufactured than other MPC powders and was likely exposed to less overall heat load during manufacture, thereby suffering significantly less protein denaturation and functional property changes from heat during processing than other brands of MPC powders.
